Perhaps a year of schedule, the Buccaneers reeled off numerous victories against terrible opponents early in the season. As the 2010 campaign progressed, however, Tampa Bay really improved and knocked off the Saints in New Orleans despite missing several key defenders. Now a year older, the Buccaneers are legitimate Super Bowl contenders, though they have a couple of things to take care of this offseason...
Offseason Needs:Two Defensive Ends:
Tampa Bay desperately needs upgrades at both defensive end positions. The team loves Adrian Clayborn and won't hesitate to pick him at No. 20 in the 2011 NFL Draft. Inside Linebacker:
Barrett Ruud is a free agent asking for too much money, so he's all but gone. The Buccaneers will have to spend a Day 2 selection on a substitute. Right Tackle:
The ugly rotation of Jeremy Trueblood and James Lee isn't cutting it. The Buccaneers need to upgrade the right tackle position. Left Guard:
Unless Tampa Bay believes Ted Larsen can improve and permanently man the left guard slot, it'll spend a mid-round pick on an upgrade. Strongside Linebacker:
Quincy Black just had a solid year, but he's a free agent. The Bucs may look at someone like Bruce Carter in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft if they can't re-sign him. Third-Down Running Back:
Cadillac Williams is a free agent. If he's not retained, the Buccaneers will need a new third-down back to complement LeGarrette Blount. Center:
Jeff Faine has missed 12 games in the past two seasons. Owed $4.6 million in 2011, Tampa may opt to find a cheaper alternative. Cornerback:
It appears as though Ronde Barber will be back for another year. The Buccaneers will have to find a successor soon though.
